Turkey's Erdogan tells NATO will take all precautions for national security

Turkey's Erdogan tells NATO will take all precautions for national security

Turkey called on the USA for collecting all weapons that are delivered to the YPG as the fight against Islamic State (IS) in Syria has completed.

As for the Afrin and Manbij operations, Assad threw into doubt the assumption that Washington would allow their North Atlantic Treaty Organisation ally to expel Kurdish militias from their footholds in Syria: "Erdogan will be allowed to do anything he wants except dislodge the SDF from certain designated areas".

It would also effectively cement the emerging status of the Kurdish-led entity, which is modeled on the vision of Abdullah Ocalan, the Kurdish leader jailed for terrorism in Turkey.

YPG is considered by Turkey to be a "terrorist group" with ties to the banned Kurdistan Workers' Party (PKK), which has waged a decades-long fight inside the country.

Turkish government on Wednesday said it was ready to take any steps necessary against a Syrian Kurdish militia to ensure the security of its borders, as speculation mounted of an imminent cross border operation.

"At present, these territories are under the control of the SDF, but the relationships between the Kurds and Arabs within the group are very tense and the United States announcement that the territory will be controlled by different groups under American leadership causes concern that the aim of the initiative is to divide Syria", Lavrov said.

The force "was not properly described", Secretary of State Rex Tillerson told reporters on Wednesday after meeting with Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in Vancouver.

"That entire situation has been misportrayed, misdescribed".

"The Coalition is working jointly with the Syrian Democratic Forces to establish and train the new Syrian Border Security Force (BSF)".

Stranger Things stars Millie Bobby Brown is set to play Sherlock Holmes' sister Enola Holmes in a brand new film series. Springer published her first Enola Holmes book, The Case of the Missing Marquess , back in 2006.

He said it was crucial for the U.S.to maintain a military presence to prevent an Islamic State resurgence and avoid the "mistakes" of Iraq. It called on the U.S.to reclaim all arms supplied to Syrian Kurdish fighters.

"America has acknowledged it is in the process of creating a terror army on our border".

France has seen as many as 1,910 of its nationals travel to Syria and Iraq to fight for ISIS, according to the latest figures released by Washington, D.C. -based security consultancy The Soufan Group. "These forces will augment local security in liberated areas and protect local populations", the statement said, referring to ISIS by its Arabic acronym.

Turkish long-range artillery has also been firing on Kurdish positions in Afrin.

On Jan. 16, Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that military operations in Syria's Afrin city against Kurdish Democratic Union Party (PYD) and the Kurdish People's Protection Units (YPG) will begin very soon.

Tillerson said the USA recognizes Turkey's "humanitarian contributions and military sacrifices" in Syria defeating Daesh, adding that Washington needs Ankara's "close cooperation" in achieving a new future for Syria that ensures security for Syria's neighbors. The Defense Department's language is nearly word for word what the US policy toward Iraq was during former President George W. Bush. A Turkish assault without its approval might prove hard and open a new front in a war that activists say has already cost more than 340,000 lives.

"The coalition's mission has not changed: to defeat ISIS in designated areas of Iraq and Syria and set conditions for follow-on operations to increase regional stability", U.S. army Colonel Ryan Dillon was quoted as saying by the Turkish state news agency Anadolu.
